org-caldav does *not* rely on Google Calendar. The documentation does
talk about it a lot, probably because that's a major use case and the
authentication is a little more tricky. But any caldav server will work
fine.

I personally use org-caldav to sync to calendars hosted on a private
Nextcloud installation. But others such as radicale should be fine as
well.

An alternative Android app that you might like to look at is
Orgzly. I've used it a little, syncing my org files to my phone over
webdav and having Orgzly send a daily notification of tasks due that
day. It seems to work well for my meagre needs.
